This function returns the inverse tangent of an angle y/x, where y = Opposite side of triangle and x = Adjacent side of triangle. Unlike arctan(x) the function arctan2(y, x) is valid for all angles and so may be used to convert a vector to an angle without risking division by zero, and it also returns a result in the correct quadrant.

NOTE:The value returned is in radians, not degrees.

arctan2(y, x);

Argument | Description |
---|---|

y | The y coordinate to calculate. |

x | The x coordinate to calculate. |

Real

val = arctan2(1, 1);

This will set val to the correct angle, in this case 0.79.
